This method has been specially developed for extinguishing flames. It is designed keeping in mind the fact that it is unsuitable to sprinkle large amounts of water on a fire core – mainly because too much water will result in longer down-time.
The Firefly water mist gives a homogenous, dense spray of fine water particles that both cool the fire core and lower the oxygen content. The method has a number of advantages over other extinguishing methods.
Firefly water mist means greater safety. Since extinguishing can be initiated at an early stage, the fire is prevented from spreading to a larger area. This reduces the risk of personal injury and material damage.
Firefly water mist means higher productivity. With early extinguishing, the amount of extinguishing agent can be minimised. With less water consumption, productivity can be kept at a higher level and minimising the downtime cost.
Firefly water mist means greater operating reliability. Water is taken from Firefly’s ordinary preventive system. Since the extinguishing system does not have any discardable components such as gas cylinder, the system can handle several incidents in a row, or follow up a previous unfinished procedure.
Should the fire ignite again, the system reactivates. Compared with other extinguishing methods, this gives higher operating reliability.
